Skilled Nursing at our Health Care Center
If a resident’s needs are assessed as beyond the services we provide in the Assisted Living Plan, our licensed, on-site Health Care Center is available with private and semi-private rooms for long-term skilled nursing care, and is Medicare/Medicaid certified. We provide long-term health care based on a philosophy that seeks to enhance quality-of-life and independence. Our staff of registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, and dieticians develop a personalized care plan for each resident under the supervision of a board-certified physician with a specialty in geriatrics. The life enrichment team provides programs appropriate to individual needs and preferences.
Registered nurses are present 24 hours a day. Forest Hills of DC also maintains close ties to nearby Sibley Memorial Hospital and other local hospitals in case of emergencies.
